I just moved out of Ascona after one horrible year. I was never told about the bedbug situation, even when I specifically asked the manager if the building has had any previous issues. Considering the section of the city the rent was somewhat cheap, but not… See More

Ascona Apartments Manager12/12/2011

Note on this specific response: according to our records no couple who had a dog in the building has moved out since July and no reports of bugs were called in during that month. Nor has any couple with a dog complained of another dog barking, at least not in the last year. We are being flamed online by an angry, likely former, tenant. Please disregard. When the bug issue first arose last fall, I spent weeks researching the issue and interviewing pest control companies (while, of course, hiring one to treat the first unit in question). We wrote informational flyers and taped them to each unit door as well as in the laundry room and elevator. As more units complained of bugs, we immediately hired and paid for treatment, including mattress covers and hand held steamers, for our tenants. We treated every unit in the building, though only a few had reported bugs. All we asked is that they cooperate with us and take the necessary precautions to stop a further infestation from occurring. After a few months, reports died down and we thought we had it nailed. Only in the last month am I now getting reports like this again and we are continuing to treat and developing new strategies that we hope will work. We continue to ask for tenant cooperation because that is more important to solving the problem than any other one step. The worst thing the tenants can do is not tell us there's a problem because otherwise we do not know. Also, the problem is not necessarily widespread, it is six or so units out of 57 that I know of and we are diligent on treating any infestation reported.

They've had them for over 9 months now and can't get rid of them. If you like to sleep in pesticides then it's all yours. And good luck with the landlords. They don't care how much you suffer. Slumlord city.
